Brevard Zoo Returns Two Rehabilitated Sea Turtles to the Indian River Lagoon

Juvenile green sea turtles Don King and Kazoo returned to the Indian River Lagoon in Titusville yesterday morning. 


Don King, who was admitted to Brevard Zoo’s Sea Turtle Healing Center on March 29, came in with a fractured front flipper and an old, healed fracture to the shell; and was covered in barnacles. Kazoo was brought in on May 27 after being found floating and lethargic at Cocoa Riverfront Park.


During their respective stays at the Healing Center, both Don King and Kazoo were treated with nutritional support and medication.

More information about Don King and Kazoo is available at www.brevardzoo.org/turtles.
